Hey there, Happy Sunday evening :)
Finally have the time to sit down and put together my "week to come" post. Much of the day was spent planning for the week, determining meals, getting the grocery list together, and then purchasing those groceries. Of course, dinner was squeezed in there, along with some down time to read a couple good articles. So here is what the week ahead, the first week on this dedicated journey, is going to look like...
LIVE - This week will be full of volleyball practices and games, along with swim practices, between both of my kiddos. I know I have my volunteer night tomorrow night, along with a late evening at work. Other than that Wednesday is clear and will be a welcome midweek break for the family, and this weekend holds no plans whatsoever - at the time of this writing ;) Beyond scheduling, my devotion series continues and will look like this:
Sunday - Esther 8
Monday - Esther 9
Tuesday - Esther 10
Wednesday - 1 Peter 1
Thursday - 1 Peter 2
Friday - 1 Peter 3
Saturday - 1 Peter 4
EAT - I plan to eat "on plan" 100% of the time this week. I really want to get a great start and only 100% will do. I am going to rotate between high carb on workout days and low carb on non-workout days. High carb days will consist of approximately 150 carbs for the day, and low carb days will consist of approximately 100 carbs for the day. This is a starting point. I will alter in the future, as needed. My primary focus will be on protein, attempting to get approximately 140 grams into my daily intake. Healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, and coconut oil will fill in the rest of my macros.
SWEAT - Because I sit on my bum much of the day, I am going to begin each day with a 35 minute walk, at a 10% incline, first thing in the morning. Then I will do a four day split on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays will be Yoga days, along with a possible long distance run on Saturday morning (major iffy on this one). My focus is to lift super heavy and allow for ample recovery time on the days I lift.
So there you go. I am going to weigh in, take before pics along with measurements tomorrow morning, and continue to do so on a bi-weekly basis. With the exception of my Sunday blog, where I share my plan for the week, most my blog posts will focus on what I have already accomplished for the day or week. While I believe it is great to share goals with others, in an effort to hold one's self more accountable, I also believe it is worth more to share what you ACTUALLY DID, rather than have to later say "oh, yeah, that didn't really go the way I had said it would." Here is to a great week!
